The eFiction 1.0 was amazing, but the templating a pain in the a**. Within the years the script got better and better.
2014 the maintainers changed. There are some bugfixes for version 3.x and a completely new version on it's way. The base idea will remain the same, but there will be a hole bunch of new amazing features to the script.
So please don't judge the script by its old versions!
